Yes, eventually there should be planned sightings of the Halo tiara since Kate's wedding earrings were designed with its motif in mind so I'm sure that will be her main tiara to wear for now. The question is: when? And she definitely needs to experiment with her hairdresser for proper tiara hair to do that piece justice.

Sooner or later the Cambridges will start to attend state banquetts. Maybe when Charles will be King? Or maybe even before, when William stops working as a pilot and they become full-time royals. And I also think that the Cambridges will, in a couple of years, start to attend gala occasions abroad. Maybe they will start with weddings of their own generation: Guillaume of Luxemburg, Madeleine or Carl Philip?

The annual Diplomatic Corps Reception at Buckingham Palace is a full-on tiara event. It's usually held in November but I can't find details for 2011. In any case it's problematic as to whether the Duke and/or Duchess of Cambridge would attend this year.

I thought the Diplomatic reception had already happened at the beginning of the month.

I forgot about it because one never gets to see pictures of it, I guess. It's really a shame.

Quite correct . The Court Circular shows it was last week, 8 November:

"The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh held an Evening Reception at Buckingham Palace for the Diplomatic Corps
at which The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent were present."

A bit thin on the ground this year - no Waleses, no Wessexes, no Princess Royal, no Dukes of York or Kent, no Princess Alexandra...

Thanks. I can't see Catherine showing up in anything other than the Halo tiara for a number of years. There are not that many tiara events in the UK anyway, unlike in Scandinavia, so until William moves closer to the throne or she takes on a much larger public role I suspect the Halo will be it.

I was starting to wonder.... she wore the earings on her wedding day and never since (at least not that we know). It was a gift from her parents/family - so why shouldn't she use them without the tiara too???

I would be very surprised to see Catherine in the Lover's Knot. It is quite ornate for someone who clearly seems to prefer understatement.

There's no reason why Kate wouldn't. Haven't the earrings been on display with her wedding gown? Perhaps now that the exhibition is over (or ending?), we'll hopefully see her wear those earrings now.

I can picture Kate in the Cambridge tiara when she is the Princess of Wales.Even though it is stunning,it will give her a headache!

Maybe she'll get her bridal tiara-the Cartier halo as the countess of Wessex uses her bridal tiara.

Hopefully not! There are so many other beautiful things in the vaults for Catherine to choose from. As Duchess of Cambridge I hope she continues to use the Cartier Scroll Tiara.
The peice I would love to see her wear is the Ruby Necklace from the Greville collection that HM wore up to around the 1980's. It is so pretty & delicate.

Do we know, if she will attend any of diamond jubilee galas? (I think I read something about Friday?) This would be clearly an occasion. Sorry, if I have missed any earlier discussion.

Catherine is down to attend the lunch at Windsor. But not the dinner in the evening, which I doubt will be a tiara affair anyway.

I agree, I believe that Kate will wear the Halo tiara for a number of years, although the palace made a point of saying, on her wedding day, that the tiara was "on loan". Also as another poster here observed a few posts up, Kate likes understated and the Halo is understated. Besides, I believe there were very few criticisms of that tiara on her wedding day and, IMO Kate likes it. All compelling reasons to continue to wear it - at least for the foreseeable future.

Sophie wore her bridal tiara (which I don't like at all) - for a number of years and now she has an aquamarine tiara which suits her much better.

It seems that Princess Diana wore tiaras alot. Do you think that when Kate becomes Princess of Wales that she will wear them more?

There are fewer and fewer tiara events in the UK as time passes. Diana attended state dinners, which Catherine has yet to do, and very frequently state dinners are white tie and tiara events. I suppose as Catherine and William become full time working royals they would attend state dinners so she would have the opportunity to wear her halo tiara.

If she becomes Princess of Wales she'll be attending more state visits/events which involve tiara events. Diana, Princess of Wales not Princess Diana married the heir that's why we saw her in tiara's more often.

There are quite a lot of State Visits to the UK but not this year as the royals are going abroad. The only annual tiara event is the State Opening of Parliament, which only a few royals attend.
